Marc Anthony has sold over 12 million albums worldwide, making him one of the most influential artists of his time and a true ambassador of Latin music and culture.  He has been awarded countless Standard gold and platinum certifications from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).  The list of Grammy accolades began with a 1998 Grammy for Best Latin/Tropical Performance for “Contra La Corriente,” followed with a 1999 Grammy for Song of the Year for “Dimelo.” 

Driven in part by the crossover success of his smash single “I Need to Know (Dimelo),” “Marc Anthony,” his English language debut album, helped usher in 1999's Latin pop explosion, and went on to achieve triple platinum status in the U.S.  In 2005 Marc Anthony went home double fisted with a Grammy for Best Latin Pop Album of the Year for “Amar Sin Mentiras” and another Grammy for Best Tropical Album of the Year for “Valio la Pena.”  He has won a total of 24 “Premio lo Nuestro” Awards throughout his career, the most won by any solo artist.   His influence was significantly recognized when he was included in the Top 10 List of influential New Yorkers compiled by New York Magazine.

In April 2013 his brand new single “Vivir Mi Vida” produced by Marc and Sergio George, occupied the #1 position on Itunes, Billboard charts and radio on a national level just hours after its release and continued to occupy that position for 18 consecutive weeks making history as the longest running salsa single of all time.  The song is an adaptation of "C'est La Vie" by Cheb Khaled. This hymn to life marks the singer’s reunion with Sergio George, who previously produced many of Anthony’s greatest hits. His new album project titled “Marc Anthony 3.0” was released July 23, 2013 and “Vivir Mi Vida” received a Latin Grammy in the “Recording of the Year” category.  The interpreter also took home an American Music Award  or a “Latin Artist of  Year” at the end of 2013.  His world tour “Vivir Mi Vida” was extended by popular demand and included in PollStar’s top selling tours of 2013.

Gob Squad: Super Night Shot

REDCAT

631 W. 2nd St, Los Angeles, CA 90012

8:30pm

The ingenious British-German ensemble playfully probes Los Angeles with two audacious projects that shrewdly mix performance and impromptu video to elevate the banality of everyday life into soaring artistic experiences. Every night is different when these adventurous artists draw inspiration from the streets of downtown L.A. and sunny Venice Beach. 

The L.A. version of Gob Squad’s most acclaimed project starts with a celebration to welcome the heroic filmmakers as they return from their unpredictable twilight mission shooting four 60-minute videos on the streets of Downtown L.A. When the four filmed adventures are screened at once, we track the protagonists in their “war on anonymity”, with epic urban journeys co-starring unsuspecting local characters searching for love, heroes and… the unexpected.
